I have thought that I might mount a Leupold 1-4x with a German #1 on a turkey gun. Set and left at 1x for turkeys. I have a concern about judging range through the optic.
Plus...the only scope cut I ever got was experimenting with a turkey scope on my trusty 870. Not enough eye relief and I got wacked good. Three inch shells and gun loosely held (I'm bad about that on long set ups) reslulted in a real bleeder.
Bamaboy has commented he'd like some type of dot on his recently acquired 835, but....I've got an aversion to battery run optics, so some more thought required.
